Infinity Forest
with Matthew Chan and Katie Hepworth_2009

Spacial intervention realized in the context of the project Laneways By George! Hidden Networks. The goal of the initiative was to occupy Sydney’s forgotten spaces with temporary artworks. In this context we created the Infinity Forest, a green box located in a narrow alley, between fire escapes, vehicle ramps and back door entrances. The Infinity Forest is a reflective box with birch trees inside. The idea was to create a green spot offering the passer-by an alternative experience. By using a fragment of reality (a few trees) augmented by the mirrors we manage to create an image of something to be: a full forest in 10m2.
